    We have just rebuilt our server, and our domain name went from
    AdvancedPower.local to Advanced.local.

    I disjoined the workstations from the old domain, and when I try to join the
    new domain using advanced.local it asks for the name and password of an
    account with permission, then I get:

    The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "Advanced.local":

    The format of the specified network name is invalid.

    If I attempt to join just using Advanced, I get

    A domain controller for the domain Progressive could not be contacted.

    I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the NICs in device manager, but
    no help.

    Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks, Bob. I had made sure that the adapter was set to get the DNS server
    address automatically, and had verified with ipconfig, but I did not look at
    the host records. I'll check that this afternoon.
